And here it is. Roger Sound Labs (RSL) CG25 LCR speaker. I just acquired 3 of these in their "A" stock outlet sale. I'll be swapping out the SVS Ultra bookshelf speakers and center for these and recalibrating.

I like the Ultra bookshelf and Ultra Center. But I couldn't resist trying these out as I've heard nothing but great things. I'm sure the sound is a little different. I'm certainly not a professional reviewer but I'll comment on my opinion after I try these out for a bit.

This should be interesting.
I know the SVS Ultra is a very nice speaker, but (like you) have heard lots of good things about the RSL speakers.
If you don't mind, let us know the pricing on the RSL's (regular and discounted).

It's 400 for the CG5 and 500 for the CG25 which is the model I bought in their outlet sale. It was 450 each for the "A" stock outlet price. Still with their warranty.

Not an ugly speaker either. I'm a SVS owner and am keen to see your thoughts on how this one compares. Let us know how you like 'em!

I think you're going to like them. Not only do they look good they sound it as well, and they aren't afraid of volume either.

I'm giving it a little more time before posting my impressions on these. None the less it will be sort of a novice / consumer level opinion as I'm fairly new to the sound game / home theater. I've been wanting Audioholics to do an official review and write up on these but I haven't seen anything from them as of yet.

I think Shady mentioned they were originally going to get a pair to review but something came up. It's a shame I'd love to see an audioholics review of these

Glad you are taking your time and listening to a variety of content.
It can be easy to fixate on the first thing that gets your attention and often there is more to the story that gets revealed as you listen to different sounds!

That review is set to happen now, and I am due to receive those speakers this week. The review won't be published for awhile, but it is in the works.

Whatever you post will be fine. Opinions from everyone help the next person make a decision about what they want to buy. Take your time, put it in your own words and when you're comfortable with the results post it up. If it's sincere people will know, and that's all that matters in the end.

Good advice Jim. As usual.
The only thing I’ll add is, if I read anything about chocolate midrange, he’s getting banned! Lol
Good to see you lately!

So... how do you think they compare to the Ultras?

Not quite ready to comment. Just wanted to oblige the photo request. What I will say is that these sound pretty awesome in two channel stereo with music. The bookshelf Ultras are still a great speaker and I intend on hanging on to them. Possibly a little more dynamics with the Ultras which I would attribute from a 6 1/2" mid as opposed to the 5 1/4" mid.

They are nice looking speakers. The drivers even look similar to the Ultras.
